The List: Five Things to Do Outside in the Conshohocken Area

Is the warm weather giving you the itch to get outside? Wondering what there is to do or opportunities to take advantage of? Here are our Top 5 things to do outside in the Conshohocken area:

  • Rent a bike and go for a ride on the Schuylkill River Trail. You can head to Manayunk for lunch or dinner or hit Valley Forge Park for a little sightseeing. Riverbend Cycles right off the trail in Conshohocken rents bikes.
  • Check out some birds at Dixon Meadow Preserve & Boardwalk in Lafayette Hill. The site consists of 14 preserved acres and includes a boardwalk that is almost two-thirds of a mile long. It is known as a haven for birders, walkers and those interested in the local habitat.
  • You can rent a canoe or kayak from REI at Ridge and Butler, but getting in the water is a bit of a challenge. You can join the Conshohocken Rowing Center and use the dock or just figure it out on your own.
  • If you do not like walking or running on the Schuylkill River Trail, a new track was built at A. A. Garthwaite Stadium (East 11th and Harry) last year. The public is basically allowed to use it when it is light out.
  • Tee’s Golf Center has a driving range, batting cages and two mini golf courses.

Enjoy the weather!
